Biography

Mexico City, Mexico (1997 – present)

Zoé is a Mexican rock band, that’s not afraid of experimenting, with a modern sound, an eclectic style, some British influences & overall, their music’s sophisticated without loss of rock energy. Their lyrics cover many subjects / feelings, with the same level of sophistication that their music shows, plus honesty. They usually write songs in Spanish, sometimes in English or a combination of both languages.

They began as a band in 1994; as time went by, the band changed members several times until the definite line-up stuck in 1997 with León Larregui (vocals and guitar), Sergio Acosta (guitar), Beto Cabrera (drums), Ángel Mosqueda (bass) and Chucho Báez (keyboards). Then the band made a demo and many gigs on their own with the little resources that they had; with all that, Zoé began to call the attention of the Hispanic radio stations in the U.S. Later in 1998, Zoé signed a record deal with Sony Music Mexico and began making their first record in 2000; this album, self titled, came out and quickly became a favourite of the audience in Mexico; after that, the band performed songs in soundracks of movies such as ‘Amar Te Duele’, ‘Ladies Night’ and ‘The Dreamer’.

Fast forward to 2003. Zoé, along with producer Phil Vinall (Placebo, Elastica, Pulp), recorded their second album called ‘Rocanlover’, which became more successful than the first one thanks to hit songs like ‘Peace & Love’ and ‘Veneno’, which aired in several TV countdowns.
